With D-Day's anniversary approaching. Who can not appreciate a close-up look at a 227,000 pound 16" gun barrel made in NY to project the might of the USA?
Second video claims the three, three-gun turrets can fire 18 rounds a minute combined.

Thank you for posting. Twenty years on active duty and this ship, crew and history still brings me to a complete halt. Amazing.

Yikes, skip losing just your fingers when handling the armor piercing rounds: Weight of armor piercing projectile 2700 pounds (shells used to penetrate another ship’s armor or reinforced fortifications on shore)
